Pub Date: 2010
Retail Price: $14.99

Astronomy and the Bible has become a trusted resource for parents and teachers. In this third edition, Don DeYoung provides fully updated answers to 110 questions on astronomy and the universe.

As Dr. DeYoung explains, astronomy tells us much about God's vast creation and his daily care for us. This book answers many basic questions such as:

• What causes the seasons?
• Is the universe expanding?
• How are star distances measured?
• What was the Star of Bethlehem?

This book is divided into seven sections ranging from the earth and moon, the solar system, the stars, to general science and technical terms. A glossary is included to laymanize any hard-to understand terms. This is an excellent enrichment tool for schools and homes alike. The answers are concise and easy to understand. They bring a fresh approach and much-needed balance to the preponderance of currently available material on astronomy.

Subtitled “Questions and Answers,” with a foreword by Dr. John C. Whitcomb, the questions range across subjects such as the earth and the moon, the solar system, the stars, galaxies and the universe, and general science. A new and helpful series of seasonal star charts for the Northern Hemisphere is included, along with a general index and a scripture index.

Creation Astronomy
Creation Astronomy is the scientific study of matter in outer space with the goal of determining or measuring properties of distant objects, such as distances, positions, dimensions, distribution, magnitudes, motion, composition, physical condition, energy, evolution, and the causes of their various phenomena. Astronomers research the contents of the Universe from the level of elementary particles to the largest superclusters of galaxies. Creation Astronomers attempt to explain stellar phenomena from the presupposition that celestial bodies were created by God. Most creationists also draw from religious texts like the Bible for insight.
